The Best Thing I Read All Week
is also probably the best thing you read all week: DOMA is overturned.
DOMA said if my children are gay and one day decide to marry their loved ones, they would HAVE FEWER RIGHTS THAN THEIR PARENTS. Isn’t that the definition of societal failure, when the generation after does worse than the generation before?
I liked this piece from Casey Carey-Brown:
“This morning when my daughter woke up, I almost told her what was happening today. But I stopped. I realized that if DOMA was overturned, she would never know a day in her little life when we didn’t have full equality. For the first four years of her life, because she was ignorant of the fact that such discriminatory laws existed. For the next years of her life, because the equality would really be ours.
I’m glad I let that moment pass. A few short hours later, it happened. DOMA is overturned. Prop 8 is dismissed. That’s it. Just like that, in an instant, equality is ours. My marriage is legal. My family is equal. This equality is all my daughter will ever know. Life rules.”
Happy Weekend EVERYONE!
